Have just bought a 9800GT Nvida card but am having problems with it. Works OK on its own but when all other hardware are connected can only get boot screen. I have a 580 watt power supply so I assume this is the problem. Would a 1000 watt power supply solve my problem.

Running 2 cd/dvd Burners
3 hard drives
Sound Card

Any help/info Please

Its not the Watts nowadays its the Amps you need to look out for.
Minimum spec is 400Watts and I believe it needs 26Amps
